Ingredients

1 large bunch swiss chard (stems and leaves roughly chopped)
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 cans petite diced or diced tomatoes
minced garlic (to taste)
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes
1 box whole wheat spaghetti, cooked while preparing sauce
olive oil

Toppings:
4 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup coarsely chopped kalamata olives


In a very large skillet (I use a wok), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and saute onions for about 10-15 minutes until browned and carmelized.


Add in chard, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Saute for about 3-5 minutes, until chard has wilted. Add in garlic and red pepper flakes, and saute for 1 minute.


Pour in the two cans of tomatoes, with juice, and stir. bring the mixture up to a simmer, and cook for about 5 minutes, until everything is heated through, and tomato juice has thickened slightly.


Add the drained pasta to the skillet, and combone the sauce with the pasta.


Pour the whole mixture into a serving bowl and top with the olives and pine nuts.


Notes:


This dish looks really beautiful, with the red and green sauce and the bright purple olives and toasted pine nuts on top.


It's also delicious as leftovers, cold or reheated.
